This was the US Army Major Nidal Hasan that killed 13 of his fellow soldiers back in 2009. Even as he was screaming “Allahu Ahkbar” (God is Great) – the Islamic battle cry while he was pulling the trigger in that “gun free” zone (yes, on a military base), the Obama Administration decided to be Political Correct / Islam Friendly and merely call it “workplace violence” as it was just another incident at the local Post Office.
So what do you call it when a uniformed member of our Armed Services says this under oath in a courtroom? KDHS News (emphasis mine, reformatted):
FORT HOOD — Accused Fort Hood shooter Maj. Nidal Hasan told a military court Tuesday he was defending the Taliban during the 2009 mass shooting on post…Hasan said he was defending “the leadership of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan, the Taliban.”
…Tuesday’s statements confirmed what Addicott had long thought. “Hasan has declared himself an enemy combatant in league with the Taliban,” he said.
Which makes a mockery of the Obama’s lie of workforce violence. When the defendant himself has sided with the enemy of the United States, uniform and fealty oath to the Constitution obviously not withstanding, this is an attack on our sovereign soil by Islamic militants.
..After a brief recess, Osborn asked if the leaders of the Taliban were the people Hasan was defending when he used “deadly force.” Hasan replied, “Yes.” “They were in the U.S. Army,” he said. “They were in an SRP (soldier readiness processing) site about to deploy to Afghanistan.”
Maybe now those were were his victims can be finally awarded the entitlements due them from being in a combat situation:
The lead attorney in the lawsuit between victims of the Fort Hood shooting and the Department of Defense said he was “outraged” by Hasan’s statement. Neal Sher is representing more than 100 victims and their family members in an attempt to reclassify the attack from workplace violence to a terrorist act. Many of Sher’s clients claim they were denied essential medical care and benefits due to the government’s refusal to label the shooting as a combat-related incident.
“Hasan has acknowledged what everybody but our government has understood — namely that he was a jihadist and that he committed this heinous act of terror, fulfilling his jihadist views,” Sher said.
